I was there
17 October 2006 | by sholtsrSee all my reviews

I was actually in The Catcher as an extra for the location shots in Memphis. Great fun and great bunch of people including Tony F. We spent three days shooting in Beal Street before the area was revitalized. Tony and Katherine Burns would hang out with the cast and crew. Tony would play his harmonica which he was just learning to play. Caterers would furnish barbecue in the alley behind the set each day. Non-speaking cast received $45 per day. I would like to own a copy of this movie if possible. Does anyone know how I might get a copy? I will pay for a copy if necessary. I know it was on TV at least once because I saw it. Not a bad pilot.

Thanks, smh
